Designer crush: Elie Saab

Elie Saab was born in Beirut on 4th July 1964. His interest in dress making started at the age of 9. His talent spread rapidly through the neighborhood, allowing him to create a small network of loyal clients.
In 1982, at the age of 18, he opened his couture atelier in Beirut. Elie Saab's style is a unique fusion of western and eastern cultures., renewing itself with each and every collection. 
Whether on the Cannes Film Festival steps or hollywood red carpets, international stars and actresses regularly turn to Elie Saab's dresses. Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Marion Cotillard, Hilary Swank, Penelope Cruz, Charlize Theron, Beyonce, Maggie Cheung, Nelly Futardo, Lea Michele, Diane Kruger.... A forever growing list of names.

This was the first time I fell in love with his designs, his work is truly inspiring and his vision behind his designs is impeccable.
